My 7 month old German Shepherd LOVES to play with this toy. She can't wait for me to fill it with treats. The only down side is the platform pieces slide out very easily and that's great when the dogs are first learning but afterward they don't have to work for it, they just bump the tower and the pieces come out.
a different skill

This toy has a few different skills then other puzzles. She figured it out quickly, but still enjoys it. One bonus is that it helps with noises and socializing dogs to noises. When the bottom disk is pulled it can make a crashing noise as the kibble comes down. It helps get her to not me so skittish.
2 weeks worth of puzzle

It took my dog 2 weeks to figure out how to solve this puzzle. It didn't last as long to keep him busy as I hoped, but I am happy that this puzzle taught my pup how to use his snout to pull the string out.
Not as hard as it looks

My very smart and motivated German shepherd/bulldog mix solved it in about 5 seconds. She smacked with her paw a couple times and all the pieces fell out of the tube. Seems like a design flaw. On the other hand, my not-so-smart Hound mix spent ten minutes being baffled by it before giving up. So maybe good for smaller dogs who can't just smack it or moderately intelligent dogs? Still, I would return it if the not-so-smart dog hadn't already used it as a chew toy.
Perfect game for tegus!

My tegu Kaiju is the love of my life, and I would do anything to keep her happy and entertained. Lots of people who keep reptiles don't realize that they need mental stimulation and enrichment to keep them happy. Many dog toys actually work pretty well as forms of enrichment for big lizards, but most feeder puzzles are too difficult for them to use with their specific anatomy.
This one, however, is not. The construction is durable- even though the tower slots into the base, my determined tank of a lizard couldn't get it off. I was a little surprised at how short it was- I thought it might be a situation where we just wouldn't use the top shelf, but even the top shelf was reachable.

That said, if I owned a large dog and not a large lizard, this game might be too small for them. For a small to medium sized dog, though, this would be perfect. My family's fifteen pound chihuahua mix would love this thing! (My eleven pound lizard sure did.)
What I really liked for my lizard (as opposed to just the overall quality of this toy in general) is that even the tallest shelf is reachable (tegus are terrestrial and stocky) and the loops are easy for an animal without flexible lips to bite, grab, and pull. So far, she's figured out that she can pull the loops, but she can also (at least for the bottom) figured out how to get her nose in there to push the shelf from the inside. For other types of lizards: this would be good for an iguana or any of the medium to large monitors. This is definitely too tall for a blue-tongue skink, ackie monitor, or bearded dragon, and there's no way it would work for a gecko of any kind. I think this would be a lot of fun for a tegu of any age, although juveniles might not be able to reach the top shelf.… more
broke in a week

This is a fun puzzle for my dog - unfortunately, I believed the instructions that it was dishwasher safe and tried to take it apart to clean. A part of the tower broke and now we cannot use it anymore (as the other pieces don't fit). I recommend not wasting your money on this!
Dog Adores This

My dog loves this. Play time with this is short but she just gets so excited to play and all her focus goes on this toy when she sees someone getting it ready. She loves this
Older dog too easy

This is a great puzzle, but my six year old beagle just knocked it over with her paw. Maybe I missed the jest and could have taught her to pull the ropes. Great quality. I am still returning it because it wasn't stimulating enough.

This is a great puzzle, but I worry the tower will not hold up to a Newfie. He has puzzled it a few times and so far it’s not broken, but it could be made stronger for larger dogs to be able to explore it without the owner fearing it will break.
Easier than it looks

Our husky mutt girl loves puzzle toys, the more difficult the better. This one took her about 3 mins to figure out on her own, so we started using it as a slow-er feeder instead of with treats to work her brain. If you have a smarty pants, try the Move To Win:)
